It is unrelated to this topic and /tmp is no
longer a directory
that resides in your hard disk, but in shared memory, if you are
running out of memory, it will be put in swap. there is nothing you
have to be worried or configure, the kernel will do the work for
Many people do not have big swaps.
Fortunately, what you say doesn't seem to be true:
If /tmp became tmpfs then this happens hopefully only whith fresh
installtion and not after zypper dup!?
Elanor:~ # mount | grep tmp
devtmpfs on /dev type devtmpfs
(rw,relatime,size=372396k,nr_inodes=93099,mode=755) tmpfs on /dev/shm
type tmpfs (rw,relatime)
tmpfs on /run type tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,mode=755)
What's this? /var/run?
tmpfs on /sys/fs/cgroup type tmpfs
(rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,mode=755) tmpfs on /var/lock type
tmpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,mode=755) tmpfs on /media type tmpfs
(rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec,relatime,mode=755) tmpfs on /var/run type
I don't see why /media has to be a tmpfs either. It is used
/media is made to hold only auto created dirs for auto mounting. Making
it tmpfs might be an elegant way to get it cleared every reboot without
needing scripts to do that.
In opposite to /tmp it will not eat much swap space.
